    I'm planning to visit Europe in the next few weeks and would like to buy a Samsung unlocked Note 8 as a gift for a family member that lives there. Will he be able to use it on carriers over there? Or will the phone not work?

    Thanks!

    It depends on which variant of the Note 8 you get and which carrier he wants to use it on. Google note 8 specs and look in the GSMArena link for the 4G frequencies, and Google the country name and frequencies, like hungary cellphone frequencies, then pick the carrier and compare the different variants with the carriers to find a match. Usually for Europe, the F variant of a Samsung phone will work, so that would be the N950F. But check the F's 4G frequencies against the frequencies the carrier he's going to be using to make sure.

    Buy it in the airport when you get here instead

    The N950F variant will work anywhere. I got mine in Nigeria and I've used it in Europe and the States with our issues.
